Hello all.

I thought this was interesting. I stumbled on it, by accident, this morning. I thought others might want to read it if they have not seen it.

Game: The Forgotten: It Begins (1999)
Publisher: Dreamcatcher Interactive / The Adventure Company (later)
Developer: Ransom Interactive

URL (comments section): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXot2ntHN48

Tim Ransom (founder of Ransom Interactive): "Ransom Interactive was my firm 25 years ago in a small shop in Lakeland, Tennessee USA. Three of our guys built this entire game themselves over 2 years time. Back then we had to create all our own textures for our 3D models as there were no texture collections to purchase. We sold 80K copies internationally but the lawyers cost to secure our IP drained most of our profits and distribution was expensive back then. The game was sold on a CD ROM and built for Mac & PC. Thanks all for playing the game- I love the fact that it is still enjoyed and relevant after all these years - Tim"

This is indeed interesting! Thank you for the link.

I remember years ago here on GameBoomers that a lot of people were hoping that the intended sequel would be released. This pretty much explains why it never happened.

Thanks Gamehound. I replayed this atmospheric game 2 years ago. It is too bad it was never continued.

I thought this was to be a trilogy. Maybe I am mistaken.

That sounds right to me, Gamehound. I remember hearing that, too.
